SARATOGA 300 KM BREVET DETAILS
Thank you for your interest in the Saratoga 300 KM Brevet. This ride is part of the Saratoga Brevet Series, and is sanctioned by Audax Club Parisien and Randonneurs USA, whose rules and regulations we'll follow.
This year's route will be an out and back to Elizabethtown, which is one of the nicest villages in the Adirondacks. It's also the county seat for Essex County, which comprises the heart of the High Peaks region. The terrain will be mostly rolling, with a couple of long climbs.
Please be sure to dress according to the conditions, which can be tricky in April. Lights and reflective gear will be required as we'll be starting before dawn. To view our rider checklist, which has our minimum lighting requirements, click here.
We'll start riding promptly at 4 AM, and will leave from the regional brevet manager's home at: 7 Pearl Street, Schuylerville, NY. Please note that the regional brevet manager lives in a residential neighborhood, so make sure to be courteous when arriving, departing and parking.

This ride will be unsupported on the road, but services will be available at most checkpoints and we'll have food at the start and finish, along with Hammer Nutrition gels, drinks and bars to take with us. We'll also have a small selection of lights, batteries, tires, tubes and other merchandise for sale at the start, in case you forget something.
